The Aragon Institute of Environmental Management (Inaga), has published in the BOA the resolution for the installation of a new lift, once the modification of the project to improve the connection of the valleys of Izas and Anayet in the expansion of Formigal, that ” you do not need to undergo an environmental impact assessment. ”

Formigal has 180 km skiable including Panticosa.

From the City Council of Sallent de Gállego, its mayor, Jesus Gericó has shown his satisfaction, as explained by Radiohuesca.com

“This will serve to continue the process of extending the winter resort in different phases to achieve an improvement in the supply of snow.”

It has been 16 years since Formigal presented this project. In 2000, a 4-seater chairlift was installed, although insufficient to connect the Izas and Anayet sectors. At the moment the station has, including Panticosa, a total of 180 skiable kilometres.

The expansion works were executed almost entirely, except for this lift, which was finally not placed. The group Aramón presented to the Inaga a modificiation to the project in the year 2003 with the aim to place a sextuple chairlift.
